Championship Begins For Walker

press release

Jonathan Walker is hoping for a turnaround in his fortunes at PFi, in the second round of the British Super 1 kart Championship this weekend.

The AMT driver admits that the Lincolnshire circuit is one of the toughest to get a result at - but is aiming for a podium nevertheless.

And he has reason to be confident, as last year he finished in a well-deserved 2nd place to 3-time British Champion, Mark Litchfield.

“PF’s one of the hardest tracks on the calendar because everyone tests there and they go well in the racing as a result. I tested there recently and was bang on the pace - one of the quickest on the day – so I think if I’m not in the top 3 in the Finals, it’ll be a disaster.”

“The first round (at Wigan, Lancashire on 13 April) didn’t go to plan” the 19-year old conceded. “I crashed in practice and injured my wrist. Driving the kart was then very difficult and painful. I crashed in the second final which forced me to retire from the race - so my Championship starts this weekend.”

“I’m looking forward to the weekend and want to put everything straight.”
